This is undeniably a Cult album due to Ian Atsbury's great & distinctive voice, but it's much a harder riff-fest than any of their previous efforts. Some classic Cult licks still permeate though. Producer Bob Rock, best known for his work with Metallica and the Cult's Sonic Temple album, once again pushes a band to be their best. A welcome album.

I would say that ''Beyond Good and Evil'' is better than The Cult most important album, ''Electric''. Although any song can performance better than ''Little Devil'', most of the singles are more than any of us (Atsbury fans) were waiting for.

Finally The Cult has gone back to their ''rockin'' days. This CD definately has the sound that the Cult use to have IE ''Electric.'' Heavy in some of their songs like, ''Rise'' and ''War'' ,and light like ''Nico.'' With Billy Duffy's guitar riffs, Ian Astbury's vocals and Matt Sorum's drums all coming together as one, the Cult is Fianlly back to their old ways.

The last Cult album Beyond good and evil is the most underrated album of our days? Why? Because is one of the most powerful and deeply personal album that I've heard since Nevermind or Dirt of Alice in Chains. This album is gold. It's a real shame that this album is forgotten today.

Beyond Good and Evil is a masterpiece, a truly great hard rock album. Personally, spiritually, politically, philosophically and most importantly musically it is great. It hits hard on so many levels. Coming from someone who writes songs and plays guitar, I the lyrics extremely powerful and deep. As I was listening, I though, this is what rock should be about. The way Astbury delivers them only helps, this guy has to be one of the most underrated voices in rock. The guitar work by Duffy is so hard driving, especially on Rise, Ashes and Ghosts, and My Bridges Burn. The best part, however, is that all of the songs, with the exception of Nico, are original. The entire album is one that has not been done before, it's not a rehash of anything and it's not the the raprock we get over and over from the likes of Kid Rock or Limp however the heck you spell it. This could be the best rock/metal/alternative album since Nirvana's Nevermind or Metalica's black album, and hopefully it will spawn more of the same. This album changed the way I listen to music, so much so I ditched a lot of old material I had written. Being only 17, I had never heard a lot of The Cult, besides She Sells Sanctuary, until I heard rise, as soon as I did I needed to know what it was. I went from listening to a wide variety of Everclear, Nirvana, Metalica, No Doubt and Lonnie Brooks to this CD and this CD alone. It has left my CD player a few times over the past month and a half, but now for long. I hope to get some of there older work in a while, but for now, I am still hooked on Beyond Good and Evil.

The Cult is a band that never clearly knew what they wanted to sound like.This is a band who early in there career changed horses in the middle of the race. As the SOUTHERN DEATH CULT they gave rock a new face..They continued this sound through the great Love album....The producer of this album, Steve Brown did a great job giving this band a sound like no other band has had since....Then comes the next record Electric...Produced by Rick Rubin...He stripped down there sound and took away there originality....Since then they have always sounded like they have tried to bridge the two sounds.....Ceremony ...Produced by Richie Zito proves this...This was the start of a downhill trend that has not stopped since. There self titled release...Produced by BOB Rock..was lost at sea....This is not the sound of a band growing, this is the sound of a band trying to capture something that just isnt there....Alright now for the review of Beyond Good and Evil.....Please God get this great band away from BOB ROCK. This record is a mess....Filler music.These songs dont even transfer live. Nico puts this band in the ballpark of where there sound should be.Go back and listen to Steve Browns version of Electic...The manor sessions...He is the only producer that truly captured this great bands original sound...everything else seems like a cover band doing the cult....Looking back this album failed to spark any fires for this band.Ian and Billy need to go back and listen to there early work and realize how great it was...
